Salford Community Theatre Project

July theatre workshops, in the Gazette

31 May 2015

From Manchester Gazette:

In July 2016 The Salford Community Theatre Group will be producing an adaptation of Walter Greenwood’s Love on The Dole.

The story is set in Salford in the 1930’s and centres around the Battle of Bexley Square, tackling questions of unemployment and inequality in Salford.

Community Theatre is a chance for anyone interested to be a part of a unique, collective event.

No experience necessary. Love on The Dole is a Salford story and needs a Salford cast

to tell it. It’s an opportunity to build confidence, friendships and pride – both in individuals and in the area in which they live.

The Salford Community Theatre group will be hosting preliminary theatre workshops on the 4th, 11th and 18th of July from 11am – 2pm at The Working Class Movement Library for anyone interested in learning more about the project or about theatre in general.

The workshops will cover skills in acting for the stage including voice, movement and working from a script.

Anyone who thinks they can help us tell this Salford story please email:
